As one of the top ten diving destinations in the world, Dominica has so much to offer divers of any experience level. There are calm shallows to explore, where curious seahorses cling to coral branches.
Deeper waters make home for over 20 species of whales that frequent these seas. Fantastic wall dives and unique crevices are waiting to be explore. La Sorciere, also known as L’Abym, is one of the most popular wall dives, where divers can peruse easily, as there is little to no current. Make your way along the volcanic ridge of Crater’s Edge, where barracuda stalk their prey and large schools of tuna and snapper make appearances.
Thermal springs erupt around the island, including underwater where volcanic bubbles and warm water emanate from certain sites.
A big attraction is the pod of sperm whales that stay close to the island from November to March.

There are two airports that receive flights from other Caribbean nations – Melville Hall Airport and Canefield Airport. International guests must fly into one of the Caribbean hubs and then hop to Dominica.
After flying or boating to the island, getting around is best accomplished via a rental car. The island is fairly large, and there are points of interest scattered all over.
